No mirrors in bedrooms
Mirrors in bedrooms must generally be avoided, and especially those that are facing the bed. Vastu calls for the placement of mirrors in other parts of the household.

Money plants, as they are easy to maintain and take care of also make for good indoor plants which can help in cleansing the air of the household.
Pets are usually high maintenance despite being stress busters. In the instance of fish and turtles though, there is an exception. Aquariums thus make for wonderful additions to the household and vastu-shastra practitioners advice keeping them at your living room. This is to usher in prosperity for those dwelling in the household, and the aquarium is required to be placed in the South-East corner of your living room.
Nameplates on doors outlining the family name or name of the principal residents of the house might be a common practice but for those who do not have one should think of placing one. Nameplates on the door are believed to act as magnets for new opportunities in life. By placing a nameplate on your door, new opportunities can trace you easily and present themselves to you.
